Locals do pay to have dust control products spread on the KVR but other trails are natural and we like it that way, though some times the dust is chokingly bad. The best you can do to counter Dust is to slowdown. If you are riding an ATV, or Dirt bike with others space yourselves so you don’t eat to much. If passing hikers and bikers on the trail slow and pass with caution.
The KVR is an organized trail with a set of rules and is maintained buy locals so as to provide a good experience for all users. The list of rules is not long and is basically common sense. Things like wearing a Helmet when riding a motorised vehicle, or not speeding past others, and providing help to anyone in need. Though simple and strait forward sometimes are not abided by or outright scorned by some.
- Respect others
- Always ware safety equipment when riding
- Never use excessive speed
- Help others that need assistance
- Slow down to reduce dust when passing others
- Always be courteous to others
- Have Fun but be safe
The KVR is wonderful to ride when everyone respect the rules, it only takes one yahoo to spoil a fun ride. Remember the KVR is part of the Trans Canada trail system that means people from around the world could potentially be using it so lets show them how gracious Canadians can truly be.
